Have anybody heard about Ingress ?
If you don’t know what Ingress is, here is somethings about it:
Ingress is a near-real time augmented reality massively multiplayer online pervasive game created by Niantic Labs, a startup within Google, currently for Android devices, but expected to be available for Apple’s iOS in 2014. The game has a complex science fiction back story with a continuous open narrative.
The gameplay consists of establishing “portals” at places of public art, landmarks, cenotaphs, etc., and linking them to create virtual triangular fields over geographic areas. Progress in the game is measured by the number of Mind Units, i.e. people, nominally controlled by each faction (as illustrated on the Intel Map). The necessary links between portals may range from meters to kilometers, or to hundreds of kilometers in operations of considerable logistical complexity. International links and fields are not uncommon, as Ingress has attracted an enthusiastic following in cities worldwide amongst both young and old, to the extent that the gameplay is itself a lifestyle for some, including tattoos.
